Discussion

A cold storm that originated in the Gulf of Alaska will bring us some shower and thunderstorm activity, low elevation snow, and gusty winds right from today into early Wednesday. Given the cold air expected aloft, some of the thunderstorms can produce hail as freezing levels are going to be quite low. There might be a break in the unsettled weather briefly Wednesday night, but another quick moving system could bring showers to the region on Thursday. Temperatures will remain below normal right through the upcoming weekend.
